Nominations for 2017 America's Best Restroom contest close at midnight on Friday
If you're planning to nominate a facility for 2017's America's Best Restroom contest, you don't have long left to do so. Nominations close at midnight on Friday.
Now in their sixteenth year, the Awards scheme encourages the public to support their local luxurious loos as well as any fabulous facility they've visited by nominating them for an award.
Submissions will be narrowed down to the top 10 finalists by a panel of judges based on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements and the contest will reopen to the public for voting this Autumn. The contest shines a spotlight on deserving public washrooms and awards the winner with $2,500 in facility services or washroom cleaning.
From spectacular sinks to enticing entrances, Cintas is looking for the facilities that top your list. If you've ever visited a restroom not to use it, but to see its uniquely-designed stalls or charming chandeliers, then Cintas wants to hear about it.
"Public restrooms don't often receive a lot of praise, so we want to recognise the most talked about toilets that are known for their super clean stalls and innovative design," says Jillian Bauer, marketing spokesperson, Cintas. "The America's Best Restroom Contest creates nationwide awareness about your business, and serves as an effective tool that shows customers that you care about providing a well-maintained and memorable restroom, which keeps them coming back."
Last year, the Minneapolis St. Paul (MSP) International Airport won for its original mosaic wall art and touch-free elements, including a sink and hand drying area and automatic doors. In 2015, the Town of Minturn Public Restrooms in Minturn, Colo., won the top title for its restrooms which resemble a horizontal passage way into a Rocky Mountain mine.
"Winning the contest last year was a huge deal for us," says Alan Howell, senior airport architect, MSP Airport. "We spent a ton of time carefully designing our restrooms to be functional for travelers, so we were humbled to be honored with the prestigious award. The contest also generated a lot of buzz about our restrooms during the holiday season, which is when we see airport traffic at its peak."
